A story actually inspired by talking to Alesia Lifantii. Because, starting up as an independent gorilla filmmaker, wasn’t easy. No matter how much passion, how much well prepared one is, when your challenges are working with squeezed budgets, and without a portfolio, that very first step, that very first filmmaking, becomes challenging. I must admit, Alesia saw my passion for indie filmmaking and even said, “I see lots of passion in you sure, we must work on something together”. And that, inspired me to give my regards to her, and thus, this story happened.
It’s a story about that girl from Ukrain, who lost every thing she had in the war, and moved to another country seeking for a new life and coincidently meets a guy at the camp, who tries his best to be of help, which eventually unfolds to friendship and then that male ego which often leads to the drama in the story. This is our first part, and we surely hope to have a second version sometime sooner. Because, we want happy endings in life.
We finished filming in June 2022, and, around August 2022, the first cut for director and actress was made ready. Now this film will go through the final cut and eventually colour correction and sound engineering and hopefully an original score, before, its ready for screening between a small group and then, lets travel festivals with it.
We shall continue to share all updates here. So, follow us and be with us on our step to this new journey of our independent gorilla filmmaking. Because, together, we will be winners. Our goal, is to make meaningful and motivational content and be a part of your weekends, to chill together.
